If you are like me (Lord help you), when deciding on a menu item for main course, I often choose one or two appetizers instead. This way, I get a variety of delicacies to try without overdoing the portion size. At Arepazo, we’ve seen that the main course entrees allow for a variety of tastings in one dish. However, if you want to go light and healthy there are great side/appetizer choices.
Anticuchos (bless you!)now called Pinchos : this appetizer is a great protein choice for anyone watching their carbohydrate intake. No bones about it, (get it?) this dish provides succulent chunks of marinated ribeye on skewers served with scallions and a red pepper sauce that adds a nice tangy, slightly sweet creaminess to the meat. Go light on the sauce, as that is where the fat calories are hiding without the total protein benefit for sure. The meat is tender and flavorful with spices of the Caribbean.
